Grange over Sands

by Peter Grant - 18:08 on 27 June 2022

A new direction?

The last Sunday of each month between April and September there is "Prom Art" on the promenade at Grange over Sands in South Cumbria. This comprises around 80 stalls offering all kinds of art and craft. My daughter is a regular exhibitor with her "Roses Workshop" range of Harris Tweed objects and hand knitted items from the yarn from Rare Breeds of sheep. Yesterday I shared a stall with her.

When I was fourteen - some time ago - I learned linocutting at what was then called Carlisle College of Art, and learned to print on an early Victorian Columbian Press.

I have recently renewed my interest in the art of the linocut, and have produced a set of six Coasters of marine subjects

and I have made several prints of other subjects.

So I took these to Grange just to see what the public thought of them.

I am pleased to say they met with some approval, and so they are now available from the Online shop.
